This book - Prostate Recovery MAP 2nd ed - is an action plan for men who want more than just survival, who want a quality of life that makes prostate surgery worthwhile. Men who are prepared to work at their own recovery to regain continence, sexual activity and lifestyle. Written by Men's Health Physiotherapist - Craig Allingham.
For many men the diagnosis of prostate cancer is the beginning of an unwelcome journey filled with waiting rooms, indignities, doctors, scores, numbers and decisions outside of their usual expertise. For those men who choose surgical treatment, the relief from the uncertainty and anxiety of the decision is welcome. The trade off however, may be life altering.
This 5 Stage recovery plan for men undergoing prostate surgery -
Dr Michael Gilman, one of Australia’s most respected Men’s Health doctors – ‘Erection problems and urinary incontinence are two of the main problems that can occur after treatment for prostate cancer. Both can be minimised with correct rehabilitation programs. This book is a “must read” for any man facing treatment for this condition.’
David Sandoe OAM, National Chairman Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia – ‘Comprehensively says all the right things men need to heed – the full truth of what needs to happen to achieve continence results as well as good health, weight and fitness objectives. The program is well designed, directly written and a must read for any partner as well. The video material from the author further explains the program and adds to a job well done.’
Barrie Blackwell, 74yo – ‘Congratulations on an exceptionally valuable work. I wish I had this fifteen years ago when my prostate was removed’.
Earl Gould (won’t say how old he is) ‘I love the jokes. This is a very positive book written for men living with prostate cancer not dying from it. The ‘every man’s’ language makes it clear and the videos are a real bonus.’
